Some of these tasks can a few hours to a few days by doing them yourself. But if the repairs are a bit larger and you have to hire a professional contractor then it may take a few weeks to complete a cosmetic remodeling of your home.

MEDIUM RENOVATION: If your home needs some additions and alterations or a damaged space has to be fully renovated beyond the cosmetic range then it can be known as the medium renovation of the home which may take a few weeks to nearly 6 months.

All these medium repairs and additions can take a few weeks to up to 6 months to complete.

MAJOR RENOVATIONS: When it becomes necessary to repair the entire home or make some structural changes then the taken in such major renovations can be from 6 months to even more than a year to complete them.

Normally the projects of major home renovations may include a huge amount of repairs in the home or sensible modernization of the looks of the entire home. such projects are known as major home renovation projects which may include structural repairs like the lifting of the house, additional of another story or repair of the foundation, etc.

Though, the timeline of these projects can be from 6 months to more than a year still the house is not overhauled completely. Sometimes a project becomes large when several small and medium renovations are done side by side. For instance, if you have to add some extension in your newly made kitchen, add luxurious items in your bathroom as well as remodel your basement simultaneously then it will be termed as a large renovation project even if every task can be completed individually. When all of these projects will be started at the same time then its timeline will increase up to a year to complete.
